More cities and towns will open up to remote workers by offering benefits and grants in the coming months
Digital Nomads can now visit exotic locations, explore rural towns, access municipal facilities and also take home the remote worker cash grant.
In 2018, the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma launched an incentive program that offered 250 remote workers with $10,000 to relocate there. Last year Vermont, The Shoals region of Alabama, and Topeka, Kansas all launched similar programs, offering workers between $5,000 and $15,000.
Since a large number of employees are working remotely, it seems like many more cities are expected to come up with these benefits to attract remote workers to their cities.
As some cities and towns are experiencing a population decline, or have seen the closure of a major employer, welcoming remote workers would be a huge benefit to their local economy.
As a remote worker, would you move to a city that offers cash incentives? What’s your take on this?
